Ellen's Broom | Kelly Starling Lyons
1 post | 2 read | 1 to read
Cherishing the special broom resting above her hearth for its representation of the slave heritage that once forbade legal marriages, Ellen prepares for her parents' triumphant registry at a Reconstruction-era courthouse as lawful husband and wife and proudly carries the broom so that they can repeat a cultural wedding tradition.

This is a sweet story about a young girl who learns about the significance of 🧹 weddings. It takes place in the Reconstruction era, a period in history I rarely see covered in picture books. Warm and uplifting, I really liked this one!
